Read Write and Paint in classroom

The kids in room 6, really enjoyed the story this week.

When the pig hides the paints from the other pets, one little girl said, “I see them hiding in the hay.”

The class did not think the pig would share the paints.

After reading we talked about ways that we might paint like the pets in the story.   Next week they will make story bubbles and write sentences based on the book.

I can hardly wait to see the art.

Comparing Water Soluble Crayons to Colored Pencils


Comparing Colored Pencils to Water Soluble Crayons

Psalm 144;145;146;147 :Bible journaling – Bible page 346

This was a test of colored pencils with water soluble crayon high lights.

The basic sketches were penciled in, and I wondered if the crayons would bleed through.

The page was sealed after the pencil sketching was done.  I used a little post it notes here, to keep track of which pages are sealed.

Colored pencils were used first to get all the little spaces filled.   It looked fine,the color is not very bright, and I know that the color will more fade over time.

This is the difference with crayon high-light added.  It brightened up the page and really made the color pop. It gave me some added range of colors for high lighting & definition too.


Started Bible Journaling

The colored pencils that I used to color my early drawings have begun to fade & press on to the other pages. It is nice to go back over them and touch up some of the color, with the water soluble crayons.

How I use the crayons

Using crayons seems pretty easy.  You draw, color, blend & add water, that is one way of using them.   I have found that drawing directly on the paper is a lot of color.   I want them to be more like watercolor paints, it is easier for me to mix and lift the color off a palette or directly of the crayon.  See Here.


The Bible that I am using here is:

Small Bible Journaling Travel Case

Small Supply Case

This was the perfect size for my small colored pencils, eraser, Pen, mechanical pencil, and Post-it Notes.

At first I used this hinged clear toothbrush case for just for pens, pencils & high lighters that were standard size.  

On one of my trips, the eraser on the mechanical pencil wore down to nothing. On that same trip I also was tearing off pieces of scrap paper to make notes of the bible study ideas that I wanted to remember.  That is when I decided, that I needed to fit in post-it notes, & an eraser into my small case.

bible study supplies

The eraser fits perfectly right where the toothbrush head would be, pencils and post-it’s fits snuggly in line.   

Mini Post-it Notes are a great solution.

A hard sunglass case might work too, if you can’t find this size toothbrush case. This was a bit larger than the other thin cases I normal find.too
